Grab and go beauty when traveling: Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm

See also

I used to take many different types of makeup while traveling, but I'm learning. Unless I have hours to get ready for a special event -- and if I'm not jet-lagged and need to use the time for a nap -- I kind of just want something that's goof-proof, doesn't demand perfect lighting and mirrors and works for all the outfits I've packed.

Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balms give you a little color and polish, but without a lot of fuss. I was glad to be hosted to experience them! They have nourishing ingredients like shea butter and botanical waxes, come in 9 colors. Those range from the lightest baby pinks to neutral beiges to darker plums. Being soft and sheer, they're all very forgiving and I'd suggest all but the darkest are good for all ages. Adding a nice bloom to lips, all but the darkest can work with a variety of different wardrobe colors. The darkest don't go on deeply, but rather add a sensuous wine-stained look to your lips.

They are packaged in small tubes, enveloped in larger, cardboard tubes. The cardboard shows the colors easily. Inside, the tubes are sealed -- so you know you're the first user!

For the rest of the month of May, the website has free shipping on lip products.
